Thursday ramblings and other insignificant thoughts

Happy Thursday everybody!  :)

Things are going well... today was parent-conferences.  Ugh.  I hate them.  And really, half my kids don't need them.  And the ones that do... well, their parents don't read the notes and I can't get in contact with them.  But I guess that's how it is in all schools. 

There's all sorts of drama going on at school right now.  Our school is tiny and there are 2 K's, 2 1sts, 1 2nd, 1 3rd, 2 4ths, and 1 5th.  The K's are tiny and the 1st is tiny so next year there will only be 1 1st, 1 2nd... and 1 4th and then 2 5ths.  What all this means is that teachers are going to be involuntarily bumped.. and all is based on seniority.  I'm low- very low- on the totem poll, so I should technically be bumped.  However, I'm the only one (besides my K teaching partner) with K credentials (ECE degree versus elementary degree).  What this means is that someone with more seniority will be bumped before me... and they're none too happy about it.  

On a positive note, however, it looks like our numbers for K next year will be pretty substantial.  So, it looks like there will be 2 K's (at least as of now), so it looks like I WILL have a job at my school in my grade.  :)  

This weekend we're celebrating my dad's birthday Saturday and Sunday we're having dinner or lunch or some sort of food-related meal with Johnny's family.  A really really late Christmas.  :)  
I got my first paper back for my class!  A 5/5.  I'm very excited.  It's nice to be back in the swing of things and it's nice to know that I can still write!

Congrats on the paper grade!

Yikes, just what you need right now: anxiety about your job.

Okay, what's worse? Parent-teacher confs or the 2ww? :)
